Back at the ISS: Musical greeting to André Kuipers and ISS crew


All music and lyrics Copyright (C) 2012 Love & Mersey. Original video credit ESA.

'Back at the ISS' is a rocking musical greeting to ESA Astronaut André Kuipers, Russian cosmonaut Oleg Kononenko and the entire crew of the ISS on the occasion of the docking of ESA's third Automated Transfer Vehicle (ATV), Edoardo Amaldi, set for 28 March 2012.

On that day, André and Oleg will undertake a special task working side by side in the Russian Zarya module of the ISS. The two will oversee the critical ATV docking manoeuvre, watching minute by minute as the vessel conducts a fully automatic docking and ready to take quick action if anything goes wrong.

Dutch band Love & Mersey have conceived and written a song using English, Dutch and Russian lyrics and inspired by the Beatles' famous 1968 song, Back in the USSR.

The band hope that everyone enjoys this musical greeting to the ISS crew and that young people, everywhere, will be inspired to do their best in following an education that may lead them, too, one day into space.
